But rising from the flat plains of Eastern Tanzania, the forests of the Udzungwa Mountains are on hand to offer a cooling refuge. The primeval forests climbs to over 2,000 meters, and visitors can spot birds, monkeys and butterflies as they explore the mountains.Trails suited to hikers of all abilities are available, and you can reward and refresh yourself with a dip in a pool at the peak or in the misty spray from the 550 feet Sanje Waterfall.While Udzungwa offers the opportunity to see a unique ecosystems, all over Tanzania you will find a wealth of wildlife. In Mikumi National Park alone you have the chance to see lions, zebra, wildebeest, impala, giraffes and more than 400 species of birds.

You can find out much about the history of Tanzania among the ruins of Bagamoyo on the coast north of Dar Es Salaam. Around 5km south of the town, the mosques and tombs at the Kaole ruins from the 13th century illustrate the country’s roots in Islam, while there are also many historical sites linked to the town’s ivory and slave trading activities in the 19th century, when it was the original capital of German East Africa. As well as a wealth of history, the town is also known for its beautiful beaches and its dhow fishing.

Just off the Tanzanian coast, the spice-island Zanzibar has some of the best beaches in the world. And if relaxing on the beach all gets a bit much, you can take the time to explore the bustling port in Stone Town or visit the Menai Bay Conservation Area, which works to protect the endangered sea turtles that come to breed on the island.
